Regulating

Regulating As a mechanical device, your piano action needs regular adjustment, called "regulating". Parts swell and shrink as the humidity changes, wear out with use, or fatigue with age.
Dirt and grit prematurely wear out felt, leather and wood action parts. Regulating and cleaning prolongs the life of your piano.

Regulating Proper regulation is necessary for the best performance of your piano. A well regulated piano is a joy to play, because it is more even and responsive to the demands of the pianist.
While new pianos usually arrive fairly well regulated, the felt and leather parts "break in", and minor regulating is usually needed even during the first or second year.

 

Action maintenance requires:

  • Regular check and maintenance by a technician
  • Periodic Regulation
  • Control humidity

Regulation is the adjustment of the mechanical aspects of the piano to compensate for:

  • the effects of wear
  • the compacting and settling of cloth, felt, and buckskin
  • dimensional changes due to changes in HUMIDITY
  •  
  • Because the wood and felt parts of the action may change dimension due to humidity and wear, the action must be serviced occasionally to maintain its responsive qualities.

Symptoms that your piano may need regulation:

  • Bobbling hammers
  • Blocking Hammers
  • Hard Touch
  • Mushy Touch
  • Uneven Touch
  • Loss of Power or Control
  • Difficulty Playing Pianissimo
  • Slow Repetition
  • Uneven Keys

The complex system which causes a hammer to strike a string when you press a key is called the piano's action.  High humidity can cause sticky keys and a sluggish action.
